Lamb shanks are made for slow cooking. No other recipe heralds the start of winter like melt-in-your-mouth lamb braised in a red wine sauce served upon a cloud of mashed potato.

It might look like a sophisticated meal, but slow cooking lamb shanks is actually very easy – all it takes is to let the slow cooker do the work for you.

6 lamb shanks

410g canned tomatoes with tomato paste

250ml red wine

250ml chicken stock

½ cup caramelised onion relish, plus extra to serve

2 bunches Dutch carrots, trimmed



  1. Put all ingredients except carrots in the bowl of a 5.7L slow cooker.
  2. Stir to roughly mix together then place bowl in appliance.
  3. Cover with lid and cook on low setting for 8 hours.
  4. Remove lid and add carrots. Cover with lid and cook on high for a further 30 minutes.
  5. Remove bowl from appliance, remove lid and season to taste. Serve with extra tomato chutney and your side dish of choice, whether it be mashed potato, potato bake, steamed beans or the best ever green vegetable bake.
